Don't use IExplorer, use firefox or chrome. You do not need to know any proxy. Stay out of Lan settings. Make sure your ethernet cord is plugged in tight on both ends. That cord should show a green light when you look directly into the ethernet jack on your computer. You should be good to go then and connect to the internet.

If you do not know how to deselect some of the factory defaults before connecting it to the internet, you will be setting yourself up to get hijacked or worse. Have someone who knows a bit about PCs to help you.

I can't get my LAN settings to automatically detect settings, box will not check.


Reset your proxy settings
Proxy servers, or proxies, act as intermediary servers between a Web browser and the Internet. According to Microsoft's website, proxies are mainly used by networks in companies to enhance the security and speed of their network connection.
Proxy servers can also be used to log Internet usage, mask the network address of a server or to apply global restrictions to a network.
Internet Explorer is set to automatically detect proxy servers by default.
You can reset the Internet Explorer proxy settings to their default settings from the "Internet Options" configuration.

I have found the easiest way to do this is to add the menu to the top of a webpage.
Create the menu tab on your homepage right click in the top toolbar you should see a number of toolbar options select the menu tab which will add File Edit View Favorites Tools and Help
Click on tools option then from the drop down list Internet Options
Select the "Connections" tab, and click the "LAN Settings" button.
Delete the proxy server address and port from the "Proxy Server" settings and clear the "Use a proxy server for your LAN" check box.


Clear the check box beside the "Automatically detect settings" and "Use automatic configuration script" options in the "Automatic Configuration" section of the "LAN Settings" dialog window. Click "OK."
Click "Apply" and then "OK" to save these changes and close the "Internet Options" dialog window.
Close all Internet Explorer browser windows for these changes to take effect.

Not able to apply the proxy settings for internet explorer


Hi,

Open Microsoft Internet Explorer and from the 'Tools' menu select 'Internet Options'. from the 'tools' menu.

Select the 'Connections' tab.

Select 'LAN Settings'. In the 'Proxy server' section select 'Use a proxy server for LAN ..., enter your proxy address, and enter port 8080. 'Bypass proxy server for local addresses' is selected if you are accessing network resources through a intranet. When complete, select OK twice.
NOTE:

After you apply your settings to the web browser test your Internet connection by attempting to access an external Web site such as http://www.google.com. Test more than one Web site. If you are unable to access external Internet resources, verify the spelling of your entries. If spelling is correct, contact your company's helpdesk to find out if there is a problem with the corporate proxy server.



Regards.

I formatted my system and reinstalled Win XP on it, but now I could not use wireless to connect with internet


Make sure you have Wireless network adapter driver installed.

Manually assigned IP address and DNS address as earlier (if your IP setting is not automatically assigned by DHCP server).

If you are using router set your Router IP address as your Default Gateway Address.

If you are using Internet through a Proxy Server then Open "Internet Explorer ",
Click "Tools",
Click "Internet options",
click on tab called "Connection",
Click "Lan settings" Button.
Remove "Automatically detect settings".
Tick "use a proxy server for your LAN....."
Type the IP address of your Proxy Server and the port no.

It will work.
